Really easy and so yummy my Mum was visiting and said I shouldn't have gone to so much trouble wasn't going to tell her I didn't. Have just made the chocolate pudding which the children loved.

This is brilliant - totally easy and delicious. We've made it twice in the last two weeks, not good for the waistline but yummy. I guess the quality of the lemon curd makes quite a bit difference - that said, we made it with cheapo supermarket stuff first time and it was still delicious.

Very quick and easy to make. Tastes fab. I used Sainsbury's Taste the Difference lemon curd which was delicious.
